My cousin gave me a tip on retaining moisture and adding a creamy texture to hamburgers- just add some heavy cream to the meat. I was plum out of heavy cream, but wanted to keep the the integrity of my cousin's hamburgers intact so I searched for something comparable, and stumbled upon a bottle of creamy blue cheese dressing in my refrigerator. Let's just say, I'm glad I ran out of heavy cream
I visited a flea market years ago and bought three crocks, usually used for making french onion soup, but if you don't have one of these crocks, a ramekin or muffin tins will work just as fine.
